Should He Go to Buffalo or Geneseo?
It's a question a lot of you are facing: should you go to your first choice school, or a less-expensive, slightly less great second choice? Read this Sparkler's email and give him your thoughts. —SparkNotes editors
I have a really really important question that I hope you can help me with. I need advice on making my college decision. I got accepted into my number one choice school (SUNY Geneseo), and was also accepted into my number two choice school (University at Buffalo). I've wanted to go to Geneseo for years now and was thrilled to be accepted. However, it would cost me about $12,000 less to go to Buffalo. Buffalo isn't a terrible school and I like it, but, for me, it's no Geneseo. The thing is, Geneseo has a better respected name which might stand out in job or grad school applications. So what do you think? Do I go with my dream school or the still good but cheaper school? Thanks so much!
What's your verdict, Sparklers? Buffalo, or Geneseo?
